Overdubs[edit]

I'm not sure how to go about re-writing some of the language in the article, but while nearly all of the basic tracks for the album were recorded live ("I'm So Cute" was even recorded during a soundcheck and not during an actual concert), the album contains quite a few overdubs on nearly every track (most notably the insane amount of Syndrum stuff on a lot of the songs, but also a lot of vocals and some guitar). It's probably Zappa's most heavily doctored "live album" and I think this should be reflected in the article. Manufactured to Comply 13:35, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

The last paragraph of the main article is the problem. It closes with the statement "aside from some overdubs, these are the only exceptions." Clearly, there were lots of overdubs. While the kernels of most of the compositions may be live, he wrapped enough techno-spiffiness around each of them for the whole enchilada to be considered a studio album.

  • It's a live album. All but one of the songs, and the Lather dialogue, represent live performances, though in a distorted fashion because of the overdubs. WTF (talk) 22:33, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

Peter Wolf[edit]

It should be noted that the Peter Wolf in Zappa's band is not the one of J. Geils fame. 72.79.207.149 23:28, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

1995 release date erroneous[edit]

It was released on March 3, 1979 (see 1979 in music) and re-issued on compact disc on May 9, 1995 (see 1995 in music).
Not so. I owned a Sheik Yerbouti CD in 1990 bought from Columbia House. -Rolypolyman (talk) 09:27, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

More Independent Articles[edit]

Bobby Brown (Goes Down) is the only Zappa song on this album with an article and I suggest that "Flakes" and "Dancing Fool" both deserve their own articles are well, for you know Zappa's important songs need to be more thoroughly represented.

I made Dancin' Fool, but I decided against Flakes. --Mrmoustache14 (talk) 20:20, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Possibly an Improper Redirect?[edit]

There is percievably an improper redirect from The Guess Who discography article, from the album Dancin' Fool to this article. I am unaware if there actually is another article by another title about the album referenced in The Guess Who discography Article. I am also unaware if "this" article here is referencing "The Guess Who" album. If there is another article by another title the redirect should go there. If there is not, could someone please eliminate the redirect. If this redirect-link is accurate could someone please clarify this within the lead text of "this" article.

Thank you. - Wolfpeaceful I'm Bisexually biased... get over it! 14:56, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Tracklist[edit]

The way the track list looks on the page looks messy and unappealing, can someone fix that? --Mrmoustache14 (talk) 01:31, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
